Our Mission

To establish programs where children with special needs work alongside their typically developing peers to enhance social skills, mold leadership qualities and boost the self-esteem of children; particularly children with High Functioning Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We nurture the self-esteem of our children by stimulating their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM), enabling them to maximize their life long potential.

Social Skills

Children learn and build confidence through play. We provide social skills training during high interest activities to help children attain socially appropriate skills that will lead to friendship(s) and meaningful relationships.

Leadership Development

Students are exposed to leadership skills, character development and opportunities to become more sensitive toward others.

ES2TEAM Empowerment

Piggybacks on the STEAM concept, however, it incorporates Esteem Building and Social Skills into the equation (Esteem building, Social Skills, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). By using “high interest” activities in creative and fun ways, students will gain a better understanding of their core subjects and stimulate possible career interests.

Discovery . Exploration . Experience

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I will learn.”

-Benjamin Franklin-

Our Philosophy

It is our belief that every child has the capacity to excel and feel good about themselves once they discover their passion. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child was established to address this strong belief.  We provide opportunities for children to develop their social and leadership skills while building a healthy self-esteem.  We focus on discovering and building on our children’s interests and abilities.
